Breaking New Ground in Fraud Recovery Claims: Turning the Tables on Cyber Fraudsters

Paul Lowenstein QC of 20 Essex Street will speak on ground-breaking developments in the fight against cyber-fraud as developed in his recent case of CMOC v Persons Unknown and others [2018] EWHC 2230 (Comm). The talk will focus on:

  • The use of the ‘Persons Unknown’ jurisdiction to found applications for Worldwide Freezing and Proprietary injunctive relief and for orders requiring overseas international banks and corporate services firms to disclose information about the destination of stolen money and details of their customers and clients apparently engaged in the fraud
  • Novel service techniques endorsed by the Commercial Court in London, including by Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp Messenger and by the provision of links to a secure online data room
  • Modifications of the rules for obtaining Worldwide Freezing Injunctions in fast-moving cyber-fraud cases
  • Legal developments in high-pressure fraud litigation, including: the correct approach to proprietary claims to stolen money; whether a fraud conspirator needs to know the identity of the target; the meaning of ‘at the expense of’ in unjust enrichment; the recoverability of foreign legal costs as mitigation damages and the availability of compound interest in knowing receipt and unjust enrichment claims.
